INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Another monday, and another started week. I hope your weekend was awesome.

This Sunday, we wanted to hike out. The Grouse Mountain was the chosen place.

We wanted to go so bad, but unfortunately at around 8:00 a.m. started raining cats and dogs, and we had to postpone because we were afraid of a terrible rain during our hiking.

So we decided to go for lunch at  Tampopo, a “all you can eat” sushi restaurant in Denman Street, quite close to English Bay. It was an amazing lunch with wonderful views. The restaurant was located in a 2nd floor and we could see the ocean from there.

The weather changed and it turned into a sunny and wonderful day. So after our lunch, we decided to go to English bay and in our way we stopped to buy ice-creams and some frapuccinos.

It was full of people enjoying the nice weather, and we could talk and lie in the grass. We enjoyed the sun and the company.It was a very nice day.

I should admit i think I won’t be able to understand the weather in Vancouver: It rains during an hour, and suddenly the sky clears up and you can enjoy the beach. It’s amazing, isn’t it ??

Next time, I’ll hike the Grouse mountain whether it’s raining or not, because Van is unpredictable.

Best,

Mercedes

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday. Victoria Day !!

Victoria Day (French: Fête de la Reine) is a national Canadian pubic holiday celebrated on the last Monday before May 25, in honor of Queen Victoria’s birthday. So this year is officially Monday 20th!! Yeahhhh, day off!

Victoria DayBut what do you know about this day? I’m sure a lot of you don’t know too much about it, so keep reading!

Queen Victoria was born on May 24th, 1819 and is still the longest-reigning monarch of the United Kingdom. (During her life, the British Empire expanded substantially).

The monarch’s birthday has been celebrated in Canada since before the beginning of Queen Victoria’s reign.

After her death, on January 1901, May 25 became “Empire Day”, and for many reasons the Monday before the 25th became Victoria’s Day!!

In some cities, fireworks are displayed or parades are held to mark Victoria Day.

One of the most notable parades is held in the capital of British Columbia; Victoria, which was named because of the Queen Victoria! It’s really famous its Victoria’s celebration, so If you can don’t miss it !!

I hope you enjoy Victoria Day wherever you are!

Best,

Mercedes
